Italian marriage record 'date'

Postby rp76226 » 05 Jan 2012, 05:42

Is the day of the Italian marriage recorded on an "Atti di Matrimonio" Italian record shown on the first line of the form after the year right and after the word "addi" (which is before the month)? Or is that just the day the marriage was reported? If so, then is the day of the marriage shown on the second line after the word "meridiane" or does that just refer to AM or PM orsomething else?

Yes, this is the date of the civil marriage IF you are actually looking at an ATTI DI MATRIMONIO and not a PUBLICAZIONE (which are the banns) :-) Or is that just the day the marriage was reported? If so, then is the day of the marriage shown on the second line after the word "meridiane" or does that just refer to AM or PM orsomething else? The words you refer to are the TIME of the marriage. anti=before, po=after --meridiane=midday; ore=hour and minuti=minutes :-)


Hope that helps

Then can I also assumethat the Atti di Nascita and Atti di Morte, which read the same way also have the day of birth and death after the word "addi" on the first line?

"Usually" a marriage record is registered immediately after it is celebrated and therefore the registration and marriage date coincide and are on the first line of the record itself.
A birth must be registered within 5 days after the actual birth and the death within 2 days. Therefore the date on the first line is the registration date. The actual birth or death date is found in the middle of the record, for the birth you will usually find the actual day-of-month number while for the death record you will read "oggi", "ieri" or "ieri l'altro" meaning today, yesterday or the day before yesterday.
